Former Metro PCS Employee Accused Of Wire Theft

OAKLAND COUNTY (WWJ) –  A former Metro PCS employee is accused of trying to steal copper wire from a cell tower. 

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department says 57-year-old Roger Heverly was charged with malicious destruction of property after he and two other men were caught cutting down 90-foot lengths of copper cable from the tower on Commerce Road. 

Investigators say Heverly used to work for the company and used the combination to unlock the gate.  Heverly also had codes and combinations to other cell sites and deputies are trying to find out if he took anything from other cell towers in Oakland County. 

Police say the two other men were released.  The investigation is ongoing.
